Photo and video from the Anne Heche car accident in Los Angeles show the severity of the crash that left her intubated and hospitalized. She is expected to survive, her ex-boyfriend, Thomas Jane, told the New York Post.
The Post reported Heche is intubated and remains in critical condition Saturday, August 6, 2022, the day after the crash. She was driving a blue Mini Cooper in Los Angeles Friday night when she slammed into a garage, backed up and then careened into another house, causing her car to explode.
Jane told the Daily Mail in a statement that he was praying for Heche. He said he was grateful that there were no additional injuries.
Reports Say Heche Was Trapped in the Burning Car for Up to 30 Minutes Before She Was Freed & Photos Show the Car After the Blaze
The Daily Mail reported that Heche was driving 90 miles per hour at the time of the crash, and that her car “exploded” on impact. The outlet further reported that 59 firefighters responded to the scene, and that it may have taken 30 minutes to free her.
“Aerial footage also showed her bursting through the straps in a white bag before writhing in pain on a stretcher as she was bundled into an ambulance and rushed to a local ICU,” the Daily Mail reported.
The Daily Mail reported that she may have been drunk, and said footage showed a bottle that appeared to be a vodka bottle was in the cup holder. Authorities have not said whether Heche was intoxicated.
The Los Angeles Fire Department told NBC Los Angeles that the fire was particularly difficult to extinguish. They did not release Heche’s name, saying only that the sole occupant was a female driver.
“Fifty-nine Firefighters took 65 minutes to access, confine and fully extinguish the stubborn flames within the heavily damaged structure, and rescue one female adult found within the vehicle, who has been taken to an area hospital by LAFD Paramedics in critical condition,” Brian Humphrey, a spokesperson for the fire department, told the news station.
Fox LA Anchor Marla Tellez shared an aerial video showing first responders carrying Heche on a stretcher.
“[email protected]_Mundel was over this wild scene at the top of our noon newscast – a car that had crashed into an apartment complex in Mar Vista area our crew captured the moment the suspected driver, now identified by @TMZ as actress Anne Heche, suddenly arose from the stretcher,” Tellez wrote on Twitter.

Who is Anne Heche
53-year-old Anne Celeste Heche is an American actress and director. She came to recognition portraying Vicky Hudson and Marley Love in the soap opera Another World, which won her a Daytime Emmy Award and two Soap Opera Digest Awards.
Another piece of the puzzle seems to be placing itself in this awful story — the same day Anne crashed in Los Angeles … an episode of her podcast, “Better Together,” aired and it suggests she might’ve possibly been boozing heavily that very same day.
The newest ‘BT’ episode — which AH cohosts with Heather Duffy — was published Friday, the same day as Anne’s crash. It’s unclear if it was recorded that day or perhaps earlier, but in any case … the contents are somewhat disturbing in light of what ultimately happened.
Take a listen to the intro of episode 62 (the newest one), and you’ll quickly hear … Anne and Heather were apparently knee-deep in some vodka and wine. Anne, especially, sounds inebriated here … and even more so as the episode goes on, lasting about 34 minutes.
Anne recounts how she’d had a tough week, explaining people had interrupted her meditating at her apartment building — the same Johnny Depp and Amber Heard stayed at in DTLA. Again, we’re not sure when this was recorded … but it was posted Friday, the day Anne crashed.
It looks like Anne and Heather usually film their podcasts as well, but there’s no visual treatment for this latest episode — only audio. There are older videos of their stuff, though.
